The Newest Intimacy Must-Have: Arousal Serum

By Aisha Beau Johnson

It’s no secret that lube is great to have in the bedroom: it makes for a more seamless and enjoyable experience for both parties. Recently some intimacy brands have been innovating and stepped things up by introducing arousal serums. So, if you’re looking to spice things up even more in the bedroom, keep reading.

Similar to lube, arousal serums stimulate wetness, but take it a step further by increasing blood flow to the genitals, catalyzing a greater sexual response. They utilize botanical ingredients to promote circulation that helps you to naturally produce your own lubrication. Amazing, right? 

If you’re interested in giving arousal serum a try, here are some of the most popular out right now. 

Dame Arousal Serum

The number one complaint of some arousal serums is that they happen to work a little “too” well and happen to cause some burning. Dame took heed of this feedback and in creating their own version, opted for a 100% natural cream that helps you to achieve an orgasm without any irritation. It’s so good, it’s currently on back-order! 

Unbound Clitoral Jolt Gel

A little goes a long way with this water-based gel by Unbound. It’s infused with peppermint oil, so the smallest amount applied acts quickly to help you reach your peak. It also comes in packets that you can easily stash in your purse or overnight bag.  

FORIA Awaken Arousal Oil

CBD lovers, this one’s for you. This serum by FORIA is formulated with a unique blend of broad-spectrum hemp and organic botanicals to help intensify your sexual experience and ease any discomfort. 

Rosebud Arouse: Stimulating Serum

This arousal serum uses aphrodisiacal ingredients like Maca, Damiana, Suma, and Ashwagandha to act as a three-in-one solution for bedroom arousal. It promotes lubrication, creates sensation to the vulva, labia, clitoris, and vagina, and delivers long lasting arousal enhancement. 

To make your experience with arousal serums as pleasurable as possible, be sure to take a look at the full ingredient list before purchasing. Anything you’re normally allergic to, may cause a reaction. Like any new skincare products, be sure to try it on a neutral zone before diving into your sweet spot to make sure you don’t have any adverse side effects.
